Best Beer Garden 2014/15 - DesignMyNight Awards

The People’s Park Tavern is a village pub and brewery beside Victoria Park in the heart of East London, serving hearty, traditional pub food as well as a range of our own brewed People’s Pints. 

Inspired by the park itself – created as it was for the ordinary people of the East End – Victoria Park received the moniker the People’s Park, and this is where we take our name.

Expect great beer, hearty roasts, DJs every weekend and fun in the super cool hacienda garden, voted one of the best in London by many publications.

This place has everything! Have an absolute blast every time i go here
19 Oct 2016 by Hello

We go to the People's Park Tavern quite a lot on Sundays and the food is always great - but this time the food took too long to arrive in fact it was about an hour and a half from ordering to being served, which when you have 2 small children to feed is not acceptable, so been warned. Having asked on a few occasions we didn't even get any apology , not great customer service I'm afraid. visited People's Park Tavern on 09 Oct 2016

We enjoyed our visit. The tavern is disabled friendly and very easy to access including a disabled toilet. Good food although table service would have made things easier (for drinks as well). Coffee needs to be served hot. Ambience great and the band, As Good as Gold were fantastic. visited People's Park Tavern on 09 Oct 2016

Initially booked an area outdoors for 30 to celebrate my 30th Birthday however, with the weather looking shakey leading up to the Saturday concerns built up we'd suffer. The Peoples' staff were really helpful on Friday and moved the booking in to the Taproom situated upstairs. This ended up being the ideal party venue as we could still venture out but had the room to ourselves with a bar, incredible choice of beers/ciders, an N64 (4 player) and have also become semi-pro bar billiard players by the time we left! Having already had high expectations based on friends' previous experiences, this surpassed even those and would recommend coming here rain or shine; you won't be disappointed.

Booked a table for 10 of us for Sunday lunch in the garden. It was a really busy afternoon at the pub (as expected on a sunny day) but unfortunately this meant that when we went to order food we were told that the kitchen was temporarily closed. Shame that we had to wait so long to order lunch, when my booking was specifically for food! Food was great when it eventually came but shame to have to wait so long... was tempted to order deliveroo to the pub at one stage! Jemma visited People's Park Tavern on 11 Sep 2016

So helpful with the booking leading up to the day with rain forecast. They changed our outside reservation to a private little cabin with own bar for my party and loved it. Shout out to Louisa our bar maid who was incredible, fun and friendly. Brilliant atmosphere, with lovely food and drink! Amelia visited People's Park Tavern on 10 Sep 2016

Great atmosphere and amazing venue. I would definitely come back here and plan on making it one of my regular pubs. Great space for nearly all parties. Crazy golf is always an extra bonus too! Jade visited People's Park Tavern on 29 Aug 2016

Booked for 40 people on Saturday: it was busy, yet the service was outstanding. The beer garden is stunning, there's something there to please everyone (cocktails, craft beers, frozen margaritas), the food was also lovely. Special huge thanks to Gianfranco who was the nicest - super friendly, super helfpul. I've been a few times so I know I'll be back, but I think all my 40 odd guests are equally impressed. Thanks so much for making my birthday a special one! Andréanne visited People's Park Tavern on 06 Aug 2016

Such a brilliant spot for my birthday do. I reserved some space in their stunning beer garden, played crazy golf, had delicious BBQ and yummy cocktails and craft beers. Ta so much! saratempleman visited People's Park Tavern on 04 Aug 2016

Great night out, we went down on a Tuesday and bagged a table outside. Had some great beers and th e service was slick too. They also have Crazy Golf at the back of the Garden too that is amazing. The Garden is one of the best Pub Gardens I have ever seen, heated huts for if it's cold, huge open astro turf area for when its hot, table fusball and a micro brewery. I can see why it has won so many awards. Will be heading back a lot now. Well done guys......
21 Jul 2016 by denestevenson

Amazing atmosphere! One of the best pubs for socialising and having a good time with friends (the mini golf is a must!) Also the staff is very friendly and helpful.
05 Jul 2016 by Cat

The guys at the People's Park Tavern were fantastic! Rebecca was an absolute star; she was able to find our large group some space inside when it rained persistently. We were really well looked after, the food fantastic, (fish & chips, and the risotto being particular favourites in our group) and the outdoor space fab when the rain died out. Highly recommend it.
20 Jun 2016 by Sukanya

We booked a table for 15 people indoors,but the weather was really nice so they gave us to tables outside. The beer choice is great the garden is great,the food is great and the atmosphere is great. Would recommend to anyone that wants a summer drink with good vibes. Hayden visited People's Park Tavern on 28 May 2016

Terrible experience - the kitchen had run out of food despite the pub not being particularly busy. So we left after one drink and moved on to a pub with food. Edward visited People's Park Tavern on 02 May 2016

I booked my 30th Birthday party here at the upstairs Craft Beer Bar. I cannot thank the staff enough for making it a memorable occasion. Great food, music & too many drinks.. Would highly recommend as a perfect venue for a party. jacksjoslin visited People's Park Tavern on 27 Feb 2016

This is one of my favourite pubs thanks to its atmosphere, layout, food and drinks on offer. So it was an obvious choice to bring friends who were visiting London last Sunday. We had a delicious roast dinner - a whole roast chicken shared between four, with lovely veg, gravy and potatoes, washed down with a couple of ciders. I'd advise booking a table in advance on a Sunday as does get busy! The pub is lovely and cosy inside but also has a pretty outdoor heated area, with sofas and huts and a decent sized beer garden beyond that. Great that the pub is right by Victoria Park too, a perfect location for walking off that Sunday roast! Amie visited People's Park Tavern on 07 Feb 2016
09 Feb 2016 by Amie

Such an amazing place! Staff are lovely,the decor and layout of the place is stunning! The lights were breathtaking! The food we had was to die for, the chicken wings were so spicy but so so delicious! Thank you for an amazing experience, will definitely be coming back : ) Danielle visited People's Park Tavern on 12 Dec 2015

Been here in summer and winter and love it every time. Way more than just a summer pub!!! Although in the summer the garden is pretty awesome! Great DJ on the Saturday night i was there and the staff were having fun with the customers which was nice to see.
11 Aug 2015 by Hello

Fabulous birthday celebrations in the garden! Stunning day, great service, very accommodating staff. The place has a great vibe. Very lucky to have this as my local! Highly recommend it - ticks all the boxes !!
10 Aug 2015 by Keeks

We had our wedding reception here and had planned a garden party. When the weather turned, the staff were unbelievably helpful in moving everything inside and helping us restructure the event. Our guests also loved the hog roast.
29 Jul 2015 by brydielk

Lovely pub, Lovely beer garden, Food wasn't great - burger was still frozen in the middle!! A great little place to go with your friends on a summers day, but I am sure it might loose its ambiance in the winter.
23 Jul 2015 by beckiread

Lovely place for drinks not for food though. We had mussels with wine and bacon, bacon was only fat and wine wasnt well absorbed - pulled pork for 2 people with roast vegetables. vegetables were overcooked and pork to dry and last chicken with vegetables not so good either.
26 May 2015 by Sofia

Fantastic wine really nice venue, but staff are unbelievable, was asked to leave at closing time, explained that I'd only just been give a number for the local cab company to a response of "you don't look like your going anywhere" I said "I'm on the phone to the company now, just given to me by staff" which they seemed even more rude suggesting that I was lying!! Ended up in an argument with them calling me a liar!! I've just spent £120 in the venue, I can not believe the treatment I've just received! I will not be returning... Oh I own a pub in Islington called the North Nineteen so I do have an informed view on pub management and customer relations

Superb pub! Best beer garden in London, great space plus lovely staff! I recommend a visit on a nice Summers day. Oh - and order the burger! You won't regret it!
19 Mar 2015 by jamesdtrelph

Delicious Sunday roast's and very generous portions, especially the roasts to share! The staff were really helpful and friendly. Great Jazz band playing as well. Looking forward to my next visit.
17 Mar 2015 by holly_r

Pub is really cool. However the whole evening was ruined by a local posing as a bouncer and threatening to beat up my friends as we were leaving. The actual bouncers did nothing to intervene and were pretty aggressive. The pub is great. I would recommend you leave way before closing so you don't get caught up in anything unwanted.
15 Feb 2015 by megan009

Never again. Food was served cold, staff were rude and aggressive. Another reviewer described them as 'away with the fairies'. *Comment moderated*

We're really sorry you did not have a good time with us, and we take your comments extremely seriously. We've refocused our management team since your visit. We consider good service to be very important, and sorry that we let you down on your visit. We hope you'll find the management and staff to now be extremely customer focused. We'd love to talk to you more if you're willing to take the time to get in contact.

Sunday roast was hugely overpriced for what it was, staff were extremely rude, abrupt and unhelpful. Nice in the Summer when the beer garden is open. Wouldn't recommend. Wish it was still The Britannia.
21 Jan 2015 by moseley

Went for a Sunday roast and the food was great. Obviously, with a brewery on site, the selection of beers was fantastic. The New Zealand Pale Ale was particularly good. The only downside was that our table seemed like a last-minute location decision and was kinda stuck in the walkway from washrooms to bar, even though we booked online. As expected, Sundays are very busy, but love dropping by mid-week. Good time has by all!

Reply from People's Park Tavern

HI Brad, we're really pleased that you enjoyed your Sunday roast and beers - we're really proud of them both. Unfortunately it can be a bit of a squeeze to get everyone in. Let us know when you book again and we'll get you a different table.

Great pub, good food however we were really disappointed by the lack of choice for kids menu. It meant ordering adult meals which went half eaten, and our bill was unnecessarily expensive as a result. This has always been a child friendly family place on the park. Please don't forget your customers with kids. There's a lot of us!
17 Nov 2014 by marysue

No children's menu and the items we did order for the children came out frozen (haddock croquette) or raw (sausage) in the middle. The manager did take it off the bill but not sure we'd risk it again. The place was filled with smoke when we arrived. It was also the second time we gave it a go. First time food took over an hour to arrive. Find the staff a bit away with the fairies. Service isn't great. There are better pubs in the area so we won't be going back.
28 Oct 2014 by Reshma

Great time had by all. Staff really friendly, and didn't mind us changing tables twice. Backyard BBQ was tasty. Will be back for pub quiz soon. Best beer garden in London!

Very happy to find this little gem! Own brewed beers, big drink selection and amazing garden. Disappointed in the very dirty toilets, but food was great and would definitely come back (just put some money into improving ur facilities)!

Hi Roxi, we take cleanliness very seriously and hope you were just unlucky on a busy day. In the last month we've had a huge clean of every corner so now the whole place sparkles.

Came here with a big group of tired friends after a game of rounders in the park and despite being worried about the possible lack of seating on a sunny day at a pub near a park, there were a couple of benches free. I had a really nice expresso stout and a massive burger with pulled pork and crackling in it; just the thing for after a long day running around in Victoria Park. The vibe here was really upbeat, with lots of children running around, loads of friendly dogs in the garden to pet, and loads of smiling faces behind the bar. I'll definitely return, hopefully the atmosphere is just as jubilent even when the sun isn't shining!

Brilliant Morgan - sounds like you had a lovely day, and we're pleased we could be part of it.

Amazing beer garden, this place is a hidden gem! I had a look at their lunch menu as well, will definitely be back with some friends to try the food!

Great Leoni, look forward to having you back.

This is actually my local. Rating wise for the garden & new decor I would rate 5. For the food however... 2x I had to send back fish & chips due to the fish being raw & cold inside. (this was a child's portion) You could clearly see that the fish was jelly like due to be under cooked. The 2nd offering was worse than the 1st. The bar staff gave me some great feed back from the chef though.. According to the chef the fish was cooked.. There are going to be a lot of ill people if that's classed as 'cooked' on a lighter note the staff were great. Very polite & helpful.

Reply from People's Park Tavern

Hi Jacqui, sorry your food wasn't as you wanted. Our chefs and managers are all fully trained in food hygiene, and we haven't had reports of people getting ill. Since this review we've got a new chef, who is absolutely superb, and new management so we hope that as you like the decor and the garden so much you'll try us again.
